Publishers open additional resources during the Corona pandemic

Several publishers and vendors have during the Corona pandemic opened e-resources for more widely use than usual. Some of the publishers have made their resources accessible for anyone, some have opened additional material for license customers or lifted limitations on the number of simultaneous users, while some have opened only publications related to COVID19 research. 

In our LibGuide, you can easily find resources of interest for University of Vaasa and VAMK: https://uva.libguides.com/additional_access. For Åbo Akademi University and Novia UAS users, resources are being updated on the website https://www.abo.fi/en/library/additional-e-resources-available/.

Access to the newly opened resources is temporary and publisher-specific. Follow the websites for updates.

The International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC) maintains a list of accessible e-resources on their website.

Limited book pickup service in Vaasa

A pickup spot for reserved books will be opened at Tritonia’s main entrance on Monday 30.3. The service is available only for students and staff at University of Vaasa, Vaasa University of Applied Sciences (VAMK) and Novia UAS and from 8.4 for Åbo Akademi University staff and students writing their thesis as regulated by these universities.

 

Students and staff at University of Vaasa, Vaasa University of Applied Sciences (VAMK), Novia UAS and Åbo Akademi University are permitted to order absolutely necessary textbooks etc. from Tritonia Vaasa’s collections. The restricted loans service is allowed during the state of emergency to secure the success of distance learning and research. To ensure the safety of students and staff, the service is arranged in a manner that is in accordance with the decisions of the universities and the orders to close universities given by Regional State Administrative Agencies (AVI) on 17.3.2020 as well as the application directive given on 20.3.2020.


Ordering books for pickup

It is possible to pick up books and reservations that were ordered in advance. To make an order use this form: https://webropol.com/s/stateofemergency-order

 

We ask you to order only absolutely necessary material, as the library has limited resources for meeting the demands during the state of emergency. Moreover, it is crucial to ensure the safety of both the staff and the customers regarding the service.

 

Pickup instructions

Orders placed by 14.00 will be ready for pickup on the next working day during open hours: Monday through Friday at 11-12 and 15-16.


Please follow the instructions stated on the door when picking up your book. Be prepared to prove your identity! The order is available for pickup until Friday next week, check the date in your order confirmation. Books will not be sent by post.


The only service offered at the pickup spot is the picking up of ordered books. The library customer service is available Mon-Fri 9-16 by chat, phone and e-mail.
